Het Meisje in de schijnwerper

De blogs zijn geschreven in het Engels. Binnenkort zullen ook de Nederlandse vertalingen beschikbaar zijn.

Hi, I’m Abbie Vandivere, a paintings conservator at the Mauritshuis, and the head researcher of the Girl in the Spotlight project. On this page I’ll be blogging and posting photos daily to update you on the technical examination of the Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Between 26 February and 12 March 2018, an international team of scientists, conservators and researchers will undertake a technical examination of our most beloved painting.

The research project is a Mauritshuis initiative, with a team of internationally recognised specialists working within the collaborative framework of the Netherlands Institute for Conservation, Art and Science (NICAS), including Rijksmuseum, Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), and the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE).
